Soap Shoes - Sylon Spectrum
Soap Shoes (grind shoes) are shoes made for grinding for an extreme sport based on aggressive inline skating. They have a plastic plate in the sole, which allows you to grind on pipes, handrails, benches and stone ledges etc. It is one of the few land-based extreme sports that can be easily practiced in both dry and wet conditions.
The Soap Boltar is a tough model from Soap, it can grind every surface possible, and can hold up to the worst of weather. Boltars have been one of Soap's most popular models and makes a great starter shoe, although it has features for all people of all levels. The Boltars have 3 exfoliant bars on the outsides and insides of each shoe, these are used to keep you from wrecking the sides of your shoes while doing tricks. Features replaceable BBK grind plates.
Please note that Soap Shoes are a tight fit and therefore you should
choose one size up from your normal shoe size. Please also note that our
sizes are all in UK format.
Here are the very basic tricks that can be performed with Soap shoes:
- Frontside- The most basic trick, run up and grind with your feet perpendicular to the rail.
- Royale- Both your feet are tweaked out in the direction you are grinding.
- Fahrvergnugen(A.K.A. Farf)- Both your feet are tweaked in the opposite direction you are grinding.
- Backside- Many tricks can be performed backside, to do this run up to the rail with your back facing it, and jump on it.
- Cheesegrater- Like a frontside, only with your feet facing in opposite directions on the rail.
- Drag Queen- Grinding with your front foot, while your trailing foot is sliding on the toe.
- Unity- Like a frontside, only with your legs crossed.
- Savannah- The savannah is like a unity, except that you cross your front leg over your back leg.
- Torque- To perform a torque, you only slide with your frontfoot in the farhrvergnugen position, and grab your backfoot
- Backslide- You have your backfoot in the royale position, and grab your front foot with your leading hand.
- Pudslide- Grind with your back foot in farf position, and grab your front foot.
- Suislide- You grind with only your front foot, and grab your back foot with your front hand.

Ordered 2 pairs of inline adjustable skates for my son & daughter (8 & 7years), the best purchase I've made this summer break! They're out practicing every day and only come in when they're hungry...great buy for some piece and quiet.
